Description

* LET'S MAKE LONDON GREENER, HEALTHIER AND WILDER

This year London will be declared the world’s first National Park City in celebration of its amazing outdoors. To mark this, there will be nine days of free events for the National Park City Festival - from pedal-powered film screenings to open-air theatre and wildlife photography.

To mark the occasion here in Walthamstow we are organising a celebratory event from 11am until 4.15pm. The day will see a collection of stalls showcasing outdoor activities for people to get involved in and there will be an array of fast-paced talks to inspire people to take a different view of London’s urban environment and get out and about more. There will be opportunities to create artworks and, if you’re game, to get your hands muddy! National Park City Makers will be on hand throughout the day to answer any questions you have about the National Park City.

Our speakers will be imagining a greener, healthier and wilder London. Each talk will ask ‘What if?’ For example, what if the Town Hall fountain was a wildlife pond? What if offices only had outdoor walk-and-talk meetings? What if we had more indoor jungles? What if mini-Holland was maxi-Holland? And what if these ideas weren't just in our imagination but just around the corner?

Leave the event with a new view of London, how to get more involved and how to make a difference!


The event is open to all and free. Just turn up to visit the stalls and take part in activities. There will be three sessions of talks, with 5 talks in each and all different across the day. Advanced booking for these is advised, though half of tickets will be reserved for walk-ins on the day. Use the link below to book talks. At the moment booking is on a lucky dip basis! If you don’t love a lucky dip and want to know more about speakers and their topics beforehand we will be publishing the schedule in due course, so please check back.
